2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Out goes veteran pass catcher Greg Jennings, and in comes veteran pass catcher Mike Wallace. The Vikings dealt a draft pick to the Dolphins to obtain Wallace to play the Z (Alvin Harper role) to Charles Johnsons’ X (Michael Irvin role) in Norv Turner’s vertical passing game. Wallace was misused in his short stint in Miami, often being asked to run short quick hitting slant and bubble screen routes. On the occasions he was sent deep, his track star speed was wasted on underthrows and off target passes. In Minnesota, Turner will turn Wallace loose early and often, taking advantage of off-safety double teams. With Bridgewater proving an improvement as a deep ball passer (46% completion percentage on passes over 20 yards vs 36% from Ryan Tannehill), Wallace should be in for a few monster games. But it’s the games you spend waiting for the homeruns that will drive Wallace owners crazy. His targets and red zone looks should plummet with more viable weapons around him. Wallace will have a valuable strategic role on the Vikings, but it just won’t do much for your fantasy success. Draft Wallace as nothing more than an inconsistent WR3.

News From The Past 90 Days
Mike Wallace vows to be "better" in Minnesota
Veteran WR making adjustments on and off the field
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Jul 28, 2:48 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Mike Wallace spent two controversial years with the Miami Dolphins, becoming the center of attention for what he often said, and often didn't say. After signing a five-year, $60 million contract as a free agent in 2013, the wide receiver had a brief, turbulent Miami tenure that ended with him on the bench for the second half of last December's regular-season finale against the New York Jets. In March, he was traded to the Vikings, who hope a change of scenery will lead to him being the player he was when starring for Pittsburgh from 2009-12. Four months after the deal, Wallace says he has a better idea of what went wrong in Miami, where his production slipped significantly. On Day 2 of training camp Monday at Minnesota State Mankato, he said he's determined to turn it around in Minnesota. "(I'm trying) my best to be a leader this year and do a much better job in that department than I have been before," Wallace said. "(I've got) to be a better person and a better player and lead more. "You take experiences that you have in your life and just learn from them. Some are good and some are bad, but you have to build from it. I know some mistakes I made in Miami. I know some good things. So I try to leave the bad and take the good." Wallace got a lot more publicity for the alleged bad things. After he caught just one pass for 15 yards in his first game with the Dolphins, he was criticized for refusing to talk to reporters, even though Miami had beaten Cleveland 23-10. Last season, after the Dolphins defeated Jacksonville 27-13, Wallace got heat for criticizing Miami's offense after a game his team won because of two defensive touchdowns. And after what turned out to be Wallace's final game with the Dolphins, reports surfaced that he had declined to play in the second half of a 37-24 loss to the Jets. He claims he was benched by coach Joe Philbin. Nevertheless, Wallace's behavior after the game was bizarre. He stood next to then-Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Gibson, who answered all the questions directed at Wallace. "You get frustrated at times when things are not going your way. You're not winning, you're not doing the things you expect out of yourself, you're not meeting your goals, and you get frustrated," Wallace said. "And I have to do a better job of holding that frustration in sometimes. I work hard. If I'm not getting results, I want to get frustrated, but I have to do a better job of not showing it." (St. Paul Pioneer Press)

FFToday's Take: Wallace is a talented receiver several years removed from his fantasy peak (2010 in Pittsburgh). With his controversial time in Miami over, he'll look to reestablish himself as a viable fantasy WR2 for the Vikings.


Charles Johnson "picking up where he left off"
Expected to have a big role in offense
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jun 24, 2:51 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Charles Johnson seemed to have gained some stability for the first time in career last year. The wide receiver emerged as the Vikings No. 1 target last year in his second season, though he didn’t even start the season with the team. “CJ has picked up where he left off in December and he’s having a good spring,” Turner said. Johnson won’t technically be labeled as the No. 1 receiver with the Vikings trading for Mike Wallace from the Dolphins, but he’s expected to have a big role in the offense. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Johnson's fantasy value took a hit with the signing of Mike Wallace but both should be in the starting lineup come Week 1. Both also have WR2 upside in 2015 with Johnson a slight favorite in PPR leagues, playing the "X" position in Norv Turner's offense.
